John Terry to miss Kazakhstan game through injury

Fabio Capello is going to have to plan for Saturday’s game against Kazakhstan without England captain John Terry. The Chelsea defender has a back problem and may also miss the Belarus match next week.

Terry was forced to sit out training over the last few days and although the England medical team will assess his fitness today, it seems unlikely that the 27-year-old will be able to take part on Saturday. Capello will choose Terry’s replacement from the trio of Matthew Upson, Wes Brown and Joleon Lescott.

The Everton player partnered Rio Ferdinand against Andorra in Terry’s absence and looks likely to get the nod on Saturday. The captain’s armband will pass to Rio.
